Time will tell whether Mad Max: Fury Road is actually any good, but we can say right now that the trailers for it are excellent. Each one seems weirder and wilder than the last, promising the kind of idiosyncratic vision we rarely see from big studio productions.
George Miller returns to direct, while Tom Hardy takes over Mel Gibson’s old role as Max Rockatansky. Charlize Theron, Nicholas Hoult, Zoë Kravitz, Rosie Huntington-Whiteley, Riley Keough, and Hugh Keays-Byrne also star. Watch the Mad Max Fury Road international trailer after the jump.

Tom Hardy has never met an accent he didn’t like, whether it’s Bostonian in The Drop, Welsh in Locke, or whatever the hell he’s doing in The Dark Knight Rises. In his new movie Child 44, he gets to take midcentury Russian out for a spin.
Directed by Daniel Espinosa (Safe House), the thriller follows police agent Leo Demidov (Hardy) in Soviet-era Russia. When he begins investigating a serial killer who targets young boys, he attracts the wrath of the state, which refuses to acknowledge the crimes at all.
Noomi Rapace plays Leo’s wife Raisa, Gary Oldman is General Mikhail Nesterov, and Joel Kinnaman is Leo’s rival. Jason Clarke, Paddy Considine, and Vincent Cassel also star. Watch the Child 44 trailer after the jump. Read More »
UPDATE: Jake Gyllenhaal has passed on Suicide Squad. Original story follows with update below.
That Suicide Squad cast just got a hair less impressive. Tom Hardy has dropped out of the film, leaving his role as leader Rick Flagg up for grabs. The Mad Max and Inception actor was set to co-star with Will Smith, Margot Robbie, Jared Leto, Jai Courtney and Cara Delevingne in the DC Comics adaptation, written and directed by David Ayer.
Despite Hardy’s exit, everything on the film is still on schedule. It’ll shoot this Spring aimed at an August 5, 2016 release date. Still, a replacement for Hardy is needed, and fast. In a very cool twist of events, apparently Ayer is looking at Jake Gyllenhaal to replace Hardy. Read more about the Jake Gyllenhall Tom Hardy Suicide Squad news below.

Mad Max: Fury Road looks absolutely crazy, and a new batch of images only fuels our curiosity about the movie. The film landed in the number-one spot of my most-anticipated list for 2015, in part because we don’t often see films like this from any source, much less from a major studio. This looks like an old Heavy Metal comic come to life, and early test screening reports describe a movie that is almost all action, with very limited dialogue. Given how great the action looks in this case, we’ll all for it. Check out a handful of new Mad Max Fury Road images below. Read More »

Cool Posts From Around the Web:
Just hours after I called Mad Max: Fury Road my most anticipated film of 2015 (other staff members, such as Germain, have a different film in their top ranks) the new trailer dropped, and melted the face off the internet. This trailer is total visual overload, with very little indication of the story to come. In fact, from what we know of Fury Road, that isn’t even a misrepresentation of the film. Like The Road Warrior, this is said to be primarily an action-heavy chase film, without much dialogue at all.
Still, there are some significant clues to take out of this new trailer. Below we’ve got dozens of Mad Max Fury Road photos from the new footage, and a lot of info about what’s to come in the film. Let’s over-analyze the trailer after the break. Read More »
I just listed Mad Max: Fury Road as my #1 most anticipated movie of 2015, and right on the heels of that list we’ve got a new trailer for the film. Watching this, my primary question is: How the hell does this movie even exist? This looks like pure, wonderful insanity, and like nothing we’d expect from the modern studio system. This seems to be a sequel that may barely be a sequel in modern terms; an orgy of practical effects and automotive destruction; and if some of those quick insert shots are to be believed, a dose of pure weirdness. Check out the new Mad Max Fury Road trailer below.

We’re back here again. It’s been a week full of rumors, as talk swirls about who will be in WB’s next DC movie, Suicide Squad, and whether or not Jena Malone is in Batman v Superman. (As it turns out, she is.) On the Marvel side the talk has all been about Doctor Strange. While we once thought Joaquin Phoenix might sign to star in the picture, he moved on. Other names have been floated, with Keanu Reeves coming up more and more often. Another new one is in the mix: Colin Farrell. How could Farrell be Strange if he also has a full season of True Detective to shoot? Timing is everything.
Update: Like John Wick going after his enemies, Keanu Reeves has started to kill rumor talk about Doctor Strange, saying he hasn’t been approached. We have his quotes after the original story below.
